Our guide Antonio was so knowledgable and managed to relate lots of the information about the archeological importance with the importance of these sites to the current local community. There is so much to discover and I recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in seeing and learning about something very unique. Great Guide, Great tour.

This tour was fabulous! The tour guide was so knowledgeable and informative. It was extra personal bc there were just two of us on the tour. If you're in Naples add the catacombs to your list of things to see.
